Nice guide, who was very open to answer questions. He described the life and creations of Gaudi and we decided we have to the inside of the Sagrada Familia. A nice combination of the outside and inside of the church.

Awesome tour, Yanni is so fun and has some great info. I highly recommend this. This comes from someone who is not a religious person, but the tour was so cool I ended up learning stuff about the Catholic church that I was reluctant in learning.

Onno had a wealth of knowledge and I would definitely pay to have him guide me outside and also inside …It may be worth thinking about a specialist in-depth tour guide who can display all their knowledge to tourists who want to hear all that is on offer. Great job and thank you.

Onno was a great Guru who had lots of fun facts about the Sagrada Familia and welcomed questions that enriched the experience. Highly recommended.
